1 The Story of the Kindness Angels Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2

2 Many years ago, before you were even born, God looked around at the beautiful world he had created. God saw the trees he made to give us shade and breezes on hot days. He touched each leaf, painting them red and yellow and orange and he looked at the sparkling snowflakes he had created, each one different just like you and me. He listened to the ocean waves crash onto the sand of the beach, and at night he d light up the sky with millions of stars and a big, bright, beautiful moon to watch over all of us so we would know just how loved we are. One day as God was walking around town; he likes to do that you know, get up and take a walk with all of us whether we re on our way to school or to work, to the park or the library even to the DOCTOR S office. As God was walking he noticed some things that made him sad. Someone had thrown their empty candy bar wrapper on the fresh green grass instead of into the trash can. And what was this? An old man sat alone on a park bench and lots of people walked by but no one said hello. He heard a brother and sister arguing over who got to hold their puppy s leash and he saw a little girl swinging by herself on the school playground while all the other children laughed and played with their friends. His feelings were very hurt when he saw that there were people without food, people without warm gloves or mittens to wear in the cold weather, and people who weren t

3 sharing the things they had with others. The more he looked around, the more he realized that people weren t being very kind to one another or to all of the wonderful things he had created. So God thought and thought. What could he DO to help people treat each other more nicely? What could he DO to help people see how important taking care of each other and the Earth was? He d already given us prayers and church, the Mass and a way to say we were sorry, he d given us stories about his life and the way he treated others, he d even given us guardian angels to watch over and protect us but it still didn t seem to be enough. But wait! Maybe he could send us a different kind of angel, ones without wings, ones who looked like us and talked like us and reminded us with their acts of kindness and love that we should be more loving and kind to one another. So God made a list of all the things he wanted his people on Earth to see; angels who would care for the Earth and its plants and animals, angels who would show kindness in simple acts, angels who could bring people together in spite of their differences, angels who would help children and people who were sick or scared or lonely. When his list was finished, he chose just the right person for each and every job and sent them here to help us. Because there

4 are SO many people in the world only a few angels come to visit different towns and cities and churches at a time. Sometimes they come in the fall or summer but our angels are here to visit us during the season of Advent and Christmas because what better time to practice being kind to our families and friends and neighbors than while we wait for Jesus to be born? Being kind is just one way we can show God how much we love him! When you look at your angel over the next few days remember how much God loves each and every one of us and how much God wants us to share, to be helpful, to talk nicely to others, to take care of the Earth and animals and plants, and to be kind to people who might be feeling sad, lonely, left out, or who don t have all of the things we do. There are lots of ways to be kind and nothing is too big or too small. Every act of kindness is important! Take good care of your angel and in a few days he or she will leave to go to another home to help another family remember to be kind and loving! And remember, God always loves you!
